Wrestling fans are buzzing with anticipation on Twitter, as they want former WWE Superstar AJ Lee to come out of retirement and potentially make a debut in AEW.
AJ Lee made it right to the top of the tree in WWE, becoming Divas Champion at the same time as also being voted Diva of the Year. Lee retired from in-ring competition in April 2015, shortly after she had teamed with Saraya (fka Paige) to defeat The Bella Twins at WrestleMania 31.
After her retirement, AJ Lee pursued different ventures, including a backstage position at Women of Wrestling. However, her association with the promotion has come to an end, making her a free agent once again.
Given her marriage to AEW star CM Punk, there is a considerable amount of excitement amongst fans, thinking she might come back to wrestling and maybe choose the Jacksonville-based promotion.
Fans on Twitter exploded with heartfelt calls for AJ Lee's comeback to wrestling, with many expressing their desire for her to complete her wrestling journey, similar to the triumphant return of Edge. Some want see her to see making her debut at All Out, which is in Chicago, the hometown of CM Punk.
